Event overview

Innovation is firmly on the national agenda. But an innovative economy is not only measured by the success of our entrepreneurial start-ups.

At this event we examine the role and priorities of industry, government and our research institutions in creating more innovative businesses, products, processes and systems.

We examine:

  • The impact and implementation of the $1.1 billion national Science and Innovation Agenda;
  • How Australian businesses are adapting to major global changes and managing disruption;
  • New approaches to overcoming structural or cultural issues of risk aversion and short-termism; and
  • How to address weaknesses in Australia's innovation system.
